    Doing clinical research on myotonic dystrophy and enjoying it a lot! Soooooooooooooo (emphasis on the "so") much more interesting than benchwork!

    I hate how basic science papers are written. It's like one big contest to see who can write the most complicated and disjointed sentence. Bonus points if commas are either overused or used in awkward places.

    -1 summer ortho research

    0 pubs (lol I suck)....

    Did I waste all my time since I didn't get any pubs? All the docs said they'd write me LORs if I want
